PLEIN-AIR PHOTOS ... Three Bay Area photographers were recently named the winners of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District's annual digital-photo contest, which honors pictures taken on district land. Stanford photographer Vaibhav Tripathi took the grand prize with his verdant "Wildflowers Dance on a Windy Evening at Sunset," taken at Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve. Second prize went to Ichiro Asao's light-beam image, and third prize to Bing Huey's photo of a banana slug bending over a twig.
